Chips Moman (1937-2016)

I was greatly saddened to hear that Chips Moman had passed away Monday at a hospice facility in LaGrange, Georgia. Over the years that I've maintained this blog my appreciation of Chips has grown as I came to know so many aspects of his musical genius. We all know of his talents as a songwriter, guitarist, and producer. But maybe his greatest contribution was finding and developing a lasting relationship with the musicians celebrated here who were responsible for making so many hundreds of great records.

 I only hope this blog has served in some way to reflect my gratitude and to serve as a record of this man's legacy.
